Originally developed in the early 1930s, Maywood Park was planned as a special development similar to Eastmoreland, Irvington, and Laurelhurst. For many years, it has been considered one of the finest residential areas in east Multnomah County.
While many of the larger homes were destroyed due to construction of the I-205 Freeway, the character of the City remains, typified by its park-like setting and well-kept homes.
The City of Maywood Park, incorporated in 1967, has always been known for its spirit of community and sense of independence from the greater metro area.
Throughout the years, many great traditions have been created by the citizens of Maywood Park: The annual Easter Egg Hunt, the City-wide Garage Sale, the Holiday Lighting contest, and the Fourth of July Parade and BBQ, to mention just a few.
The City Council and residents wish to welcome you and hope that you will enjoy the special quality of life that we feel is a central attraction of Maywood Park. We are a close community, with a sense of purpose in protecting and improving our City, and we encourage you in joining us in our efforts.
One need only stroll down the beautiful tree-lined streets of Maywood Park to appreciate the obvious pride of ownership and the unique, friendly atmosphere that abounds.
Once again, welcome to YOUR City!
The City of Maywood park is represented by a Mayor/Council type of government composed of five members.
Regular elections occur every two years, and Council terms are based on the number of votes cast for individual candidates (either two years or four years). The Mayor and Council President are selected every two years by the Council, from the Council members.
Administrative roles in the City are the City Treasurer, City Recorder and City Transcriptionist. The Mayor and the Council are responsible for selection and appointment of these part-time positions.
